Is it time to think about moving to assisted living?

Assisted living is an excellent way to secure your freedom and confidence as you age. Don’t let a few tasks of your daily life hold you back from living well and pursuing your interests. Supportive senior living services can help.

It is essential to recognize the signs that it is time to transition to assisted living. Making this decision can be emotionally challenging, but it can improve someone’s quality of life. Here are some key reasons to consider assisted living:

  • Struggling with daily tasks: Difficulty with dressing, bathing, or preparing meals can indicate a need for additional assistance and support.
  • Well-being concerns: Frequent falls or accidents can pose risks to seniors living at home, making assisted living an ideal option.
  • Isolation and loneliness: Are you feeling increasingly isolated or lacking social interaction? Assisted living communities offer companionship and a sense of belonging.
  • Caregiver stress: Is a family caregiver experiencing burnout? It may be time to consider assisted living to ensure everyone’s well-being.
  • Difficulty with home maintenance: Is managing a home becoming overwhelming? Assisted living communities relieve seniors of the responsibilities of upkeep and household chores.
  • Meal preparation challenges: Are you losing or gaining weight in an unhealthy manner? Assisted living offers nutritious and convenient dining options.
  • Transportation issues: Seniors who can no longer drive and rely on others for rides may find community-provided transportation services beneficial.
  • Financial considerations: Assessing the cost-effectiveness of assisted living compared to in-home care can help make a well-informed decision.
  • Medical emergencies: The availability of immediate assistance during emergencies and access to health care professionals is a critical benefit of assisted living.
  • Enhanced quality of life: Older adults deserve to feel valued and engaged. Assisted living in La Verne offers a vibrant community and daily opportunities to improve overall well-being.

Recognize these signs and discuss them with yourself or your loved one.

Hillcrest | Resident receiving nursing care

What is the difference between skilled nursing and assisted living?

Skilled nursing and assisted living are two different types of care options. They are available in places like Los Angeles senior living communities. They cater to the needs of residents but offer distinct levels of care and services. At Hillcrest, residents can transition between both services if their needs change, and we provide continuing care.

In an assisted living residence, older adults receive help with their activities of daily living (ADLs): 

    • Bathing
    • Dressing
    • Meal preparation
    • Medication management 

These living spaces also promote personal care and independence. They often feature amenities such as a dining room and various activities for residents. 

Assisted living communities offer a more homelike environment. They are ideal for those who require some assistance but do not need skilled nursing care. Many seniors and their families choose assisted living when they are still fairly independent but need some day-to-day support.

A skilled nursing facility is often referred to as a nursing home. It is a setting where older adults with increasing health needs receive round-the-clock care from licensed medical professionals. This level of care is necessary for individuals with severe health issues, disabilities or after a hospital stay. 

Skilled nursing care includes services such as: 

    • Wound care
    • Rehabilitation services
    • Administering medications or treatments 

These facilities are a more medical setting compared to assisted living. While they provide long-term care to some, it’s generally used for short-term rehabilitation.


When it comes to assisted living, the focus is on promoting independence and social engagement. Activities and amenities are offered to keep residents engaged in the community. In contrast, skilled nursing facilities focus more on medical care and rehabilitation services. They are better suited for those with complex health conditions.

Assisted living costs can vary depending on the level of care required, the location, and the amenities offered. Some individuals or their family members may use long-term care insurance to help cover the monthly price. Medicare or Medicaid may pay for nursing home care but not residential living.  

The primary difference between skilled nursing and assisted living is the level of care provided. Assisted living is for older adults needing help with daily tasks to maintain independence. A skilled nursing home is for those with serious health needs that require constant medical attention. Both options aim to provide quality senior care based on the individual’s needs in appropriate settings.
